Children, staff and families enjoy a cuppa or two for Biggest Morning Tea at Muswellbrook's Goodstart Early Learning

THERE was a real party atmosphere at Muswellbrook's Goodstart Early Learning on Thursday - and didn't the kids love it.

The Brentwood Street child care centre hosted its annual Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser, with hot and cold beverages, as well as healthy treats, satisfying everyone's tastes.

"This is our fourth function - and it's one of our most popular ones on the Goodstart Early Learning calendar, too," events coordinator Emma Russell said.

"We've raised in excess of $500 over the past three years.

"It's not a huge amount, but every little bit helps.

"It is also our way of assisting a very worthy cause [Cancer Council].

"And, the children and their families look forward to it.

"We encourage everyone, from staff to the 'littlies', to dress in yellow as well."

A number of other Biggest Morning Tea "gatherings" took place in Muswellbrook this week, including Joblink Plus and Hunter Belle Cheese.
